The Department of Recruitment is responsible for recruiting, educating and maintaining the interest of the student body in the goals and initiatives of Student Government. We work with the other departments to determine how we can expand and improve our reach and influence to students and faculty members. We also communicate with different student groups and organizations at Boston University in order to promote the initiatives of Senate and the other Departments. We will be connecting with students directly through Splash and many other first month events and collecting their contact information for better outreach throughout the year. Our primary goal is to expand Student Government into a reputable and visible force on campus and throughout Boston.
Hi everyone! My name is Angela Chen and I'm incredibly excited to be serving as the Director of Recruitment for Boston University’s Student Government. I am a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, double-majoring in Neuroscience and Psychology; I am also on the pre-medical track in the hopes of becoming a neurosurgeon. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, but currently reside in Jericho, Long Island, NY.
Outside of BU, I work at a mini clothing shop on Harvard campus and I’m also a worker/volunteer at Tufts Medical Center. Fun facts about me: I am severely allergic to at least 40 different things and I also love running long-distance in my free time, hoping to compete in the Boston, NYC, and London Marathon sometime in the future.
I have been involved in Student Government since my freshman year and throughout my last year, I hope to give everything I got after being in the Recruitment department in the past and leave with the mentality that I helped impact the BU student body for the better. Throughout my time at BU, I have served as both President and Vice President of Internal Affairs of CAS Student Government in the past. In addition, I am the Chapter Correspondent/Historian for Co-Ed Biology Fraternity Beta Psi Omega, Program Coordinator for CAS Academic Ambassadors, and Secretary for the Society of Women in Space Exploration.
As Director of Recruitment, my main focus is to bring the BU student body community together as I strongly sense that there will be a disconnect with the transition from LfA to in-person. I understand that it might be difficult with the transition this upcoming year; however, I’m optimistic that I can help smoothen the transition, along with spreading the word about our public events and fundraisers while recruiting staffers at the beginning of each semester. Throughout the year I hope to maintain Student Government’s relationship with many student organizations, from Greek Like to Cultural to Religion with the possibility of multiple collaboration events.
I hope to be as transparent as possible to ensure the best communication and bond, not only with my team and the rest of Student Government but with the entire BU student body. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me through social media or by email if you would like to share ideas or have any questions about Student Government. I’d love to meet many of you guys!
Hi everyone! My name is Megan Lau and I am so excited to serve as your Deputy Director of Recruitment. I was born and raised in Arcadia, CA, a suburb within the Greater Los Angeles Area. I am a junior in the Questrom School of Business studying Finance & Marketing with a Political Science minor. I have been involved in Student Government since my first year, serving as a Student Elections Commissioner and Treasurer for the College of General Studies Student Government Association.
